The first part of this show concentrates on Window 98 which apart from having USB is Windows 95
I wish I had a machine back then that swam effortlessly from icon to icon!
In the Linux part we have a breif history of Linux and of Linus T. While, like a lot of television, it is shallow I never seen him on TV before, he looks almost like Mr Gates, I wonder if they share some genetics?
The last article, about a wireless portable email m/c from RIM never mentions the S-Word, happy dayz indeed.

Interesting look back
The majority of this show is about windows 98. I remember being one of the many that got taken in by the buzz going around about Windows 98... this program is a good example of this. They show some pretty basic features that we all take for granted today... and gloss over many of the shortcomings. I felt like this show was a big advertisement for Microsoft. Its worth the download for a funny look back, and it features an unexplicable interview with Linus(even if it is short) considering the show's focus.
